JOTS, she is so adorable. Enjoy each stage, I've found them all wonderful so far. Then again, mine aren't teens yet. ;-)

23 and still at home isn't much better than the teenage years.

At least he cuts the lawn....

Thanks Wineland. We have some teen and pre teen years going on right now. Fortunatly the oldest ( my step son but he's pretty much my son because his Dad is a dork and he likes me better )has a pretty good head on his shoulders and my daughter the pre teen saves all her hellish drama up for her mother and is pretty good for us at our house ( have 50/50 week on/off ). I say it's karma : )

Sounds like you have a good thing going. My approach has been create a good open relationship now so the foundation is laid when we get to the teen years. I may be calling you in a couple years to get a few routes out of the parenting playbook.

oh heck man me? I owe most everything to my wife ( NOT ex wife ). I've learned much patience from her. All you can do is do the best you can and BE there is the most important thing I think. It's working wonders with my daughter. And as for boys - I just make fun of them : )

We joke around quite a bit and everyone teases good naturedly. Until yesterday... I called my son a Bierberhead, for no appearant reason, he never listens to Justin. The way he looked at me I knew I crossed some unspoken line. Quickly apologized for that one.
